Lunenburg has long been considered to be the most active fishing port in Nova Scotia. A great museum with a great gift shop also (priorities, please) on the harbour. Real ships to tour, a 'touch' tank for children, great guides/story tellers. Open seasonally (May thru Oct, telephone to find out). Best views of Lunenburg. (902) 634-4794 Restaurant and bar on the upper floor have a fantastic view, excellent food and drinks & very good service.
The two historic ships which are part of the museum are: the Theresa E. Conner and the Cape Sable.
